The father of fallen SEAL Tyrone Woods called into the Lars Larson Show and revealed some startling details about the Obama administration’s response to the Benghazi terrorist attack.
Here’s the full interview:
Here’s the transcript of a few key moments in the interview:
First, Mr. Woods talked about meeting President Obama at Andrews Air Force Base.
I could tell that something wasn’t right. I was back there at Andrews Air Force Base when the bodies were shipped in. We were in a room, a building, a little ways away from the hangar where the speech was given, and for about a half hour the President was there, the Vice President was there, Hillary was there, Colin Powell was there. When the President…we had formed little pod areas for each one of the families…and when he came over to our little area, I could tell, he kind of just mumbled. You know, “I’m sorry.” His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere, “I’m really sorry” you know “that your son died.” It was a totally insincere, more of a whining type, “I’m sorry.” And it was like shaking hands with a dead fish. It just didn’t feel right. And now it’s coming out that apparently, the White House Situation Room was watching our people die.
Then he talked about meeting Hillary Clinton:
Well, this is what Hillary did. She came over and, you know, she did the same thing, separately came over and talked with me. I gave her a hug, shook her hand, and she did not appear to be one bit sincere at all. She mentioned that thing about, “We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video.” That was the first time I had even heard about anything like that. And apparently even the State Department had a live stream and was aware of their calls for help. This was my son, he wasn’t even there. He was at a safe house about a mile away. He got the distress call. He heard them crying for help. That’s why he and Glenn risked their lives to go that extra mile just to take care of the situation. And I’m sure that she wasn’t the only one that received that distress call: “Come save our lives.”
Towards the end of the interview, Mr. Woods cuts to the chase about what should happen going forward.
When I heard that there’s a very good chance that the White House as well as other members of the military knew what was going on, and obviously someone had to say, “Don’t go rescue them.” Because every person in the military, their first response is, “We’re going to go rescue them.” We need to find out who it was that gave that command.
Mr. Woods’ words are heartbreaking. The more information that comes out about the Obama administration’s response to the Benghazi attacks, the worse it looks for the White House. Here we have Hillary Clinton blaming the video to the face of the father of one of the slain.
Just as a reminder, the White House and the State Department already knew that there was no protest by the time they stood at Andrews Air Force Base to welcome the caskets. They knew within the first two hours. They knew it was a coordinated terrorist attack by an Al Qaeda linked group, and the lied to this father’s face.
Mr. Woods is completely right. The attack lasted for seven hours, and now that we know that the White House, State Department, CIA, and military were monitoring the situation as it happened, the questions are: Who gave the order not to intervene, and why?
